Can you beat me?



Yesterday I brought the game Speed Stacks home from school for the kids to play. Lizzie was sleeping over and her and Emily stayed up until 2.00am practicing- do they look tired? You can time yourself and Emily currently holds the record with 17 seconds.

Oh cool! Jay does speed stacker in his class at school. The teacher uses it as a fine motor exercise for the kids that need it. They are going to even do it in assembly soon. Jay keeps begging for me to buy it for him now.

Its currently on special at toyworld for $25 instead of $70. At Chris' school a whole class has a set each & they did it in assenbly too. Its also good for crossing over the midline - uses both sides of the brain at once. A great idea!

Hey Collette - I tried that one on Jay - gave him some plastic cups to use, but he wasn't keen on them! :( He said he needed the real thing and the timer! Bummer!!
